Message from Mrs. Bohler

Families,


SES is participating in the Great Kindness Challenge next week! We will celebrate by completing many acts of kindness, kindness stations at recess, and showing our spirit of being a kind kid through dress up week! We encourage you to ask your child what act of kindness they did while at school today. Ask your child what they could do the next day at school to show kindness.


Our weekly SMORE newsletter is full of information and celebrations of learning happening at SES this past week! We hope that you continue to follow us on Twitter and through our SES PTO Facebook page. We will continue to showcase students throughout each week!


Yearbooks are still available to purchase. There is a link provided below for you to order online.


The weather is always unpredictable, so make sure you prepare your child for anything! Jackets, coats, hats, gloves, scarves, hoodies, etc. need to be labeled with your child's name so we can return to the owner if misplaced.


CAR RIDER FAMILIES:

Please remember to have your car tag visible in the windshield each day at dismissal. We will be checking daily and will ID anyone without a tag. Thank you!


Have a wonderful week!


Your Lead Learner,

Mrs. Bohler

Mrs. Elledge's class is working to solve word problems using base ten blocks.


TJ had 37 pieces of candy. He passed out 10. How many pieces of candy does he have left?


Cheyenne Yates solved her problem by taking one ten away. She worked her way through understanding that taking one ten away is better than taking all the ones away.

Mrs. Whitley's 2nd Graders Working in Groups to Research Animals

Students in Mrs. Whitley's class made a list of animals they would like to research. The students picked one of the 5 animals to research in the class. Students worked in groups to look for information through the Internet and in books provided by Mrs. Whitley. Then students categorized the facts they found into habitats, food, description, and interesting facts.

Family Activity Bags

#sesFAB (week 1)
SES Family Activity Bags (FAB Bags)

Coming Soon!!

Parents,

Welcome to SES Family Activity Bags! We are excited about our new themed activity bags for your family to learn and have fun together. Each bag has everything you need to get started (and finished) including the glue, crayons, books, scissors, and things to keep as well.

Students selected this thematic bag and will get to keep it until the following Thursday. We ask that you follow the instructions provided after this letter on what to keep at home and what needs to be returned to school. We encourage you to complete as many activities as possible throughout the week. All activities are related to the standards students are learning at school.

We’d love to see pictures of your family completing the activities through Twitter (tag @SheridanSES and use #sesFAB) or you can text them to the SES phone number at 870-455-2198. Students will also have an opportunity to show and tell everything they did with their family on Thursday when they return the bag.

We hope that you enjoy the Family Activity Bag your child picked out!

WATCH D.O.G.S at SES

WATCH D.O.G.S. (Dads Of Great Students) is an innovative father involvement, educational initiative of the National Center for Fathering.

What are the goals of a WATCH D.O.G.S. program?

  • To provide positive male role models for the students, demonstrating by their presence that education is important.

  • To provide extra sets of eyes and ears to enhance school security and reduce bullying.

Who are WatchDOGS and how does WATCH D.O.G.S. work?

WatchDOGS are fathers, grandfathers, uncles, and other father-figures who volunteer for at least one day each year at an official WATCH D.O.G.S. school.


WATCH D.O.G.S., a K-12 program, invites fathers, grandfathers, uncles, or other father figures to volunteer at least one day all day at their child’s/student’s school during the school year. WatchDOG dads and volunteers perform a variety of tasks during their volunteer day including monitoring the school entrance, assisting with unloading and loading of buses and cars, monitoring the lunch room, or helping in the classroom with a teacher’s guidance.

SES Watch Dog Dad Night

Pop Tabs at SES

For the next few months, Sheridan Elementary School will be participating in a service project to benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charities. The Ronald McDonald house is a “home away from home” provided for families of seriously ill children receiving treatment at nearby hospitals. Little Rock has one of these houses. The Ronald McDonald House Charities currently has a drive to collect pull tabs (as shown in the picture at the top of this page) for aluminum cans. The pull tabs are collected and donated to the charity who will then recycle them for funds to help support the Ronald McDonald House. We will be having a contest in our school to see which classroom can collect the most tabs in total weight during our collection period. The tabs will be weighed periodically throughout the contest. The winning class will get to take a field trip to the Riverfest School Days Pop Tab Pandemonium Event held at the River Market in Little Rock. Collecting by the students may begin immediately. This is a great way to teach kids about philanthropy and the importance of recycling while raising funds to help children and their families at the same time. We would like to encourage you and your family to help us out with this worthwhile activity. THANKS!


What does RMHCA do with the pop tabs?
We recycle tabs and the money we receive helps pay for families to stay at the Ronald McDonald House. We do not require our families to pay to stay, so this program alleviates some of the costs associated with housing 28 families each night.

Visit the site below to find out more about Ronald McDonald House.

Box Tops for Education

We are having a Box Top collection contest during the 2016-2017 school year. We will collect Box Tops from each class.


Box Tops Tips:

Please trim all excess off of all labels prior to turning them in; it saves us time and shipping. Please use the attached collection sheet and either glue or tape the box top in the square. Each filled page of box tops will amount to $3.00 and will be counted toward your child’s class. Please check the expiration dates prior to sending in. Bonus Box Tops have to be kept separate from regular box tops. Please make sure your child’s name and teacher are printed on the collection sheet. If you need more collection sheets, contact the office or your child’s teacher.
